OUR MOST ASKED QUESTIONS
Do you do deep tissue massage?
I do not do deep tissue work - I believe in the power of rest and relaxation and our body's own ability to reset with regular bodywork. If you are looking for full body deep tissue massage, post-surgery massage, or have a chronic injury or issue that you would like specific work on- please give me a call and I am happy to refer you to several amazing, local therapists.
What is cupping?
Cupping is a complimentary enhancement that you can add to any massage. It reduces tension in the muscles and multiple layers of connective tissue, increases circulation, and removes stagnant blood- making way for fresh blood flow to bring oxygen and nutrients to the injured or tense area.

Do I have to get completely undressed?
The level to which you undress is completely up to you. If you’re uncomfortable, you don’t have to undress completely; it’s perfectly okay to wear underwear while having a massage. Draping is ALWAYS required during a service and only the areas being worked on will be exposed.
Do I need to shave my legs, or get prepared in anyway?
To me, a leg is a leg. Shaving is not required, and will not be mentioned during your session. If you are receiving a scrub, shaving is not recommended 24 hours before your appointment. No other preparation is required besides filling out your paperwork and being ready to relax.
Should I talk, or stay quiet during my massage?
This is your session- some clients find it therapeutic to chat or ask questions during their session. I want you to be as relaxed as possible, so I will not initiate conversation, but I am happy to chat if that's what you are comfortable with.
This is my first massage, what should I expect?
First things first- you are completely in control of your appointment at all times. When you arrive for your appointment, we will review your intake forms and discuss any questions you or I have. I will then step out of the room to wash my hands and allow you a few minutes to undress, lay on the massage table, and begin to relax. I will always knock before returning to ensure you are under the covers and ready for me to enter. Throughout the massage I will check in on your comfort. If you are cold, hot, want more or less pressure, want the volume of the music adjusted, etc, please just let me know and I will do what I can to accommodate you. You may notice that while you are lying face down, your nose may get stuffy or runny. This is completely normal and if you need a tissue please ask. After your session I will step out again to wash my hands and allow you a few minutes to gather your thoughts and re-dress. We will meet again in my office to start the checkout process.
Please silence your cell phone during your session.
It is best if all jewelry and watches are taken off, unless sentimental or unable to be removed.
